My phone will not connect to the Sprite, any suggestions?  It tells me to connect to Netro….., I select that in my WiFi options, but it does not connect.  
Comcast confirmed I have the correct WiFi service/equipment.

Whisperer Bad Readings

Billy Wood
Updated at 2021-06-13 19:42:18 UTC 

I have one Whisperer up and running just fine. Based on this I purchased a second. The second produced readings that were inconsistent when the device was placed next to the first Whisperer (read about half on moisture when compared to the first). So, I sent it back to Amazon for a replacement. The replacement arrived and it also appears problematic. The light reading is normal, but the temperature is 486 degrees F and the moisture is 1 percent. The device is stuck at these aberrant readings and they are obviously problematic. I've tried deleting the device and reinstalling several times. The result is the same.

Any advice or assistance would be appreciated.

Manual runs not working and watering during rain

Rebekah H
Updated at 2021-06-13 19:48:23 UTC 

Hello, 


My Netro has been watering despite heavy rains. The home page shows the soil is 100% saturated. Also, when I try to manually run the system, none of the zones will come on. I’ve tried the reset button and I’ve tried unplugging the system but it still won’t work. 


Any ideas?

Backup

Topic: General
Best I can tell from the cursory technical specs is that for the Sprite the backup for a custom (not smart) watering schedule is in the cloud and for the Spark the backup is stored on-device in nonvolatile memory.  Is this correct?

Smart watering with an irrigation pump

klzig
Updated at 2021-06-15 14:16:19 UTC 
My irrigation system runs off of a pump.  If I enable smart watering, will zones automatically enabled for a certain day run sequentially such that the pump will be turned on at the beginning of the daily cycle and off at the end of the cycle?  I don't want the pump cycling on and off multiple times during the day.

Why such erratic scheduling when using smart watering?

ducati1198804
Updated at 2021-06-16 14:03:50 UTC 
Why does the Spark controller schedule watering zones so erratically?  I have 7 zones and if it decides that all 7 zones need to be watered on the same day, why wouldn’t it just water in order 1-7.  Instead it might water 1,2,4,7,3,5,6,7?.  Or it might water zone 1-2 on one day, 4,5,6,3 the next day, and then 7,7 the next day.  

Why does it want to water at least one or two zones per day for 4-5 days in a row instead 5-7 zones per day and turn on the system two days in a row?  

Seems like it would place uneccersary wear on valves and other system parts.

Just bought a home that has Netro however each time the sprinklers turn on they are pointing in different directions then we had them originally set. We end up watering cars and the street more than the lawn. Any suggestions?

Smart zone predictions?

Sid Smith
Updated at 2021-06-17 12:12:33 UTC 

I am still trying to figure out the rain prediction algorithm. 

I had 1 set of zones schedule to eater at 5 am on the 17th.

This was overridden by the program anticipating rain at 3am on the 18th (according to forcast). Why does it look so far ahead? Does it take into account the current moisture reading? There is an 85° full sun day between these events.

I recreantly purchased the netro controller and several times it has gone offline with having to unplug and restart. This seems to only work for a day and then goes offline again. I have rebooted my rooter which is on the same floor as the netro. Any help would be great.

Programs that ignore sensors?

Jacques
Updated at 2021-06-20 19:10:17 UTC 
Is it possible to create a program that ignores the data from the whisper sensors? When its above 90, I like to run a 3 minute session on all zones to cool the blades off, but if the moisture is too high it skips those zones. I'm fine with my other programs skipping since they're more about the soil.

Fine-tuning smart watering for rotors

Ken Laberteaux
Updated at 2021-06-22 04:16:23 UTC 

I have a smart zone comprising rotor heads.  As I understand, rotor heads need to be run for longer times than other types of heads because they are only delivering water to one direction at a time (the current direction of the stream of water from the rotor).  Further, the amount of water delivered in a given time depends on how large of an arc the rotor passes through.  For example, if the rotor sweeps through only 180 degrees for 10 minutes, that ground gets 2x the water per unit area than if it runs through 360 degrees for the same 10 min.


So, it seems that, since the choice of rotor head does not include information about the arc it will travel through, there is no way for the smart watering algorithm to know how much water is being delivered per unit area, i.e. a zone with rotors going all 360 degrees is likely under-watering.


I believe this is happening on my lawn, and i would like to make a change in order to increase the time of watering for this zone.


What dials do I have at my disposal to make the smart watering algorithm water this zone for a longer period of time?
